HP Mini Vivienne Tam Edition gallery

Vivienne Tam Mini design

We were able to spend some time with an Mini Edition netbook (or, digital clutch as HP is calling it,) and thought the product was nice enough to warrant a photo gallery. We’ve snapped eighteen up-close-and-personal images of the Vivienne Tam Edition equivalent of the HP Mini 1000, and we have them available for you to view in our Vivienne Tam gallery. We will be bringing you much more on the HP Mini Vivienne Tam Edition, including videos and interviews with the people behind the product, but for now, enjoy the images.

Oh, and if you are interested in purchasing the Vivienne Tam Edition, here are a few links:

CES 2008 Video: Lenovo U110 fashion ultra-portable notebook

Lenovo introed new notebooks at , our favorite being the U110, (named for its 11” widescreen), which is as sexy as it is compact. First we loved the gorgeous and eye-catching red, textured casing. Open it up and you’ll type on the glossiest keyboard ever, as pretty as it is comfortable. But the U110 is not just a fashion statement, it’s a solidly-built machine, with a 64 GB solid-state drive (SSD), which there are no moving parts whatsoever. Also includes a 1.3 MP webcam. Available in April for $1800 USD.


The Diskette Handbag Provides Storage in a Whole New Way

Posted by Lolita Beckwith Categories: Accessories, Wearables, Design

Diskette Handbag While not Yankees vs. Red Sox proportions (yet), readers of this website may have noticed a war is raging between the Floppy Diskette and the Circuit Board for retro-chic domination. There are Diskette notepads and pen/pencil holders, while the Circuit Board has countered with a photo album, Christmas ornaments, cigar holder and more. Now the Diskette has struck back, this time with a tote bag for the ladies. It’s made of black vinyl covered with 12 floppies, contains lots of pockets for your gadgetry, and measures 7.4x10.6x4.5”. Perfect for that IT-lovin’ lady in your life. We can’t wait to see what the Circuit Board comes up with next. Available for $55 USD.

Geek Chic: The Space Invaders Bag

Space Invaders

Ok, this writer is just going to admit it: in addition to goofy USB items and off-kilter (or useful) docks, she has developed an obsession with anything recently retro, waxing nostalgic about doo-dads that remind her of the 70s or 80s.  Case in point: Rockza’s Space Invaders Bag, made of PVC (translation: faux leather), and decorated with rows of the scurrying aliens. Oddly missing are the four protective “shelter blocks” and cannon, but we’ll let it go.  Unfortunately, the bag is only available in Korea for 42,000 Korean Won ($45 USD). But let’s hope the trend comes stateside, as we think a Centipede version would look really cool, in a geeky sort of way.

iPod Apparel, for Ladies Only

iPod Mini SkirtSo we’ve featured -related apparel in the past, but mostly for men, such as belt buckles and suits. But now we’ve got a little sumthin’ sumthin’ for the ladies: a line of capris, mini skirts, jackets, shorts, boot leg pants and tanks, with a built-in pocket for your iPod or MP3 player, courtesy of Vickerey. iPod broken? The pocket lays flat while your buddy is being repaired. Prices range from $55 to $96 USD. As with our other obsessions—wacky USB-powered gadgets and unusual iPod docks—we can’t wait to see what’s next in the world of iPod apparel. Bra and panties, maybe?

iPod Suit Keeps You Geeky and Fashionable

iPod SuitIf you’re a regular Gear Live reader, you may remember our articles on -ready clothing from Tunebuckle and iWear. Now, popular British retailer Marks and Spencer is planning to introduce a wool and Lycra-blend suit with a lapel that has buttons to control your iPod, which is concealed within the suit. The tricky part is that to see what’s playing or to change playlists, you’ll have to manually disconnect the iPod. The James Bond-esque, black pinstripe suit will sell for approximately $178 USD. Want the matching pants? They’ll run you an additional $117 USD.
